FRINGE COMEDY – Becky Brunnings: Beaming – The Piglet at Gluttony – 3K

Becky Brunning is an unassuming comic. In her words, if she were a sandwich, she’d be egg.

FRINGE 2017 – ARRR is for Adventure by Atmospheric Artistries – La Petite Grande, Gluttony – 4K

To riff further on a subject of constant consternation for me, it must be beyond challenging to design and perform a children’s show. Who can pinpoint with any accuracy what the little ones will find funny or boring, entertaining or tiresome? Regardless of the source of the entertainment, it is immediately obvious when a kid’s …
